Tumbling Blocks Throw

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

18 sts and 24 rows = 4" [10 cm] When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

When changing colors, twist yarn on WS from underneath to avoid holes.

THROW:
With MC, cast on 160 sts. Beg on RS with chart, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) following chart from right to left twice. Cont chart as est to Row 92, then rep Rows 1-92 twice more, then rep Rows 1-46 once. DO NOT bind off.
Top Border: With MC, knit 1 row. Work in garter st (k every row) and inc 1 st at beg and end of every row in following color sequence: 1 row MC, 4 rows K, 2 rows MC, 4 rows G, 2 rows K, 4 rows MC. Bind off to gauge.
Lower Border: With RS facing and MC, pick up and k 160 sts along lower edge of throw. Work as for top border.
Side Borders: With RS facing and MC, pick up and k 230 sts along one side edge of throw. Work as for top border. Bind off to gauge. Sew mitered edges. Work same on other side edge of throw.
